Prevent water damage
Old windows often have leaks, particularly in the corners. Over time, leaky windows can cause unwanted water damage. If your windows are in really rough shape, you can even find yourself facing a flood during a heavy rain storm.
If you end up with water damage as a result of old, worn, and leaky windows, your homeowners insurance may or may not cover the water damage repair.
